Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice & Apple Pie Spice

 I haven't purchased pumpkin pie spice in years...this works great and you probably have all the ingredients on hand...


HOMEMADE PUMPKIN PIE SPICE


Large batch: 

Combine 1 TB.cinnamon with 1-1/2 tsp. ginger, 3/4 tsp. nutmeg, 3/4 tsp.allspice and 1/4 tsp. cloves. Use as you would store-purchased.

Small batch: (equals 1 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. allspice
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
few dashes of cloves 


I don't use apple pie spice as much, but it's really good.  I love cardamom!!
Use this in any apple recipe, or substitute pumpkin pie spice. 

APPLE PIE SPICE

 1 tsp. cinnamon 
1/2 tsp.nutmeg 
1/4 tsp. cardamom

In a small jar add all ingredients. Place lid on jar and shake to combine. Add or decrease preferred ingredients to suit your personal tastes.
